Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Liverpool and Manchester City.

The two English giants are currently battling it out for the Premier League title, but it appears that Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola could also lock horns in the summer window.

According to the Daily Mail, Chukwueze has impressed both managers with his performances for Villarreal in La Liga this season.

The 19-year-old has contributed five goals and two assists from 24 outings in Spain’s top flight, with his displays helping Villarreal sit five points clear of the relegation zone.

Chukwueze has a release clause of £54m, but the report suggests that Villarreal could be prepared to reach a compromise with any interested clubs
